Updated In April, 2017 - The online sports betting industry in the USA is much more slow moving than other industries, like poker and casino. Online sportsbooks have developed some new features and some new online sportsbooks have popped up now and then but for the most part, things have not changed much at Internet sports betting sites, bookies, bookmakers or sportsbooks, whatever you prefer to call them. This page will list the newest sportsbooks online that accept USA citizens in 2015 and list some of the new innovations in sports betting. A list of the largest and most popular sportsbooks five years ago looks almost exactly the same as the list below. Online sports betting sites still offer the exact same kind of promotions - like free sports bets and betting contests - as they did a decade ago. Sports books were the first major gambling companies to move online and the oldest sportsbooks are also the most popular, the safest and generally the best so I will include the top 2015 sports betting sites in the list of new sports betting sites in 2015 below, but I will specify the age of each bookmaker so you know which is which.
|Sports Betting Site||Special Bonus Offers - April, 2017||
|25% bonus up to $250, $100 in free bets, 8% rebate||
|50% bonus up to $250, reloads for life & more||
|50% bonus up to $250, betting rebates, free bets||
|25% bonus to $1,000, 3 free bets ($100), 7% rebate||
|25% bonus up to $1,000, free bets, 7% Rebate||
It really isn't considered wise to put too much trust into new USA sports books online in 2015. It is not like trying to find a new online poker site in 2015 or a new online casino in 2015. Scambooks do exist on the fringes so most online sports bettors stick with the oldest, safest and most established sportsbooks. Now all new USA online sportsbooks are unsafe though. It really depends on the company. Carbon Sports is a good example. This new online sportsbooks accepts U.S. citizens and is obviously related to the Carbon Poker room. CarbonSports.ag might be new but Carbon Poker is not, so this new book inherits the online sports betting community's trust from their popular poker room since it is very unlikely they would run a reputable poker room for 7-8 years but then throw their reputation away by scamming their sports bettors. Some new sportsbooks for USA bettors are not part of established companies and these are the ones that you should be most wary of. It is not that they won't pay you or will blatantly rip you off. I consider any Internet sports betting site that arbitrarily lowers the amount that you can bet or removes your ability to place certain types of wager simply because you have won several. Books that "slow-pay" - meaning that they only allow you to withdraw $1000 per month for example, are also considered scambooks. There should be USA online sportsbook withdrawal limits but they should be much higher.
Other New Online Gambling Sites For USA Players In 2015:
Sportbooks that have unfair bonus policies or T&C's can sometimes be called scambooks, but to a lesser extent. A few exaples of scambooks or untrustworthy sportsbooks in 2015 include Sportsbook.com/Sportsbook.ag, SBG Global, 1BetVegas and CanBet. The list of new (and old) sportsbooks above includes several exclusive free bet and bonus offers that only users who click our link can claim in 2015. The age listed for TopBet is based on when they rebranded, moved their domain and completely restructed their sportsbook so for all intents and purposes they are a new U.S. sportsbook since 2012. Learn more about Top Bet in this TopBet review or visit our 2015 Top Bet promo code page to claim the bonuses and start placing real money wagers online.
All five of the new USA friendly online sportsbooks listed above also offer racebooks, or horse race betting sites. Millions of Americans place horse bets at racebooks like Bovada.lv and Betonline.ag in 2015. These top horse betting sites in 2015 work with all of the major U.S. horse tracks, including Balmoral Park, which is only 25 minutes away from me. Despite living so close to a racetrack I sill make most of my bets online at the racebooks listed above because they offer daily or weekly horse betting rebates and bonuses.
There are a limited number of brand new innovations and notable improvements at online sports books over the years. Sportsbooks online do not have advanced software packages in which to build new features like online poker rooms and casinos do. Live in-play sports betting isn't new but the live betting platforms at our leading new USA sportsbooks in 2015 are definitely new. They have each developed advanced yet easy to use in-play betting features so you can place wagers in real time as the game or match plays out. No in-person bookie has ever issued lines on things like if the Bears will get a first down on their next play, unless you were sitting with your bookie at a bar watching the game or something. Two of our new US sports books - Betonline.ag, and Sportsbetting.ag - have a free live sports bet promo running. New players can place a $25 in-play sports bet and if the bet loses they will refund you the $25. You can turn this risk-free $25 sportys bet into hundreds of dollars at this new USA friendly online bookie without risking any of your own cash.
Another new online sports betting feature is mobile betting. The concept behind mobile sports betting certainly isn't new but the platforms and apps developed by each of the new U.S. sportsbooks online for Android and Mac/Apple smart phones and tablets are new. You can even claim a free mobile sports bet at CarbonSports, Betonline and SportsBetting. New players at Betonline and Sportsbetting can make a free $50 mobile sports bet. If your bet does not win they will refund you the $50. This risk-free $50 wager is cool because you cannot possibly lose a penny of your own money and depending on what you bet on, you could win hundreds or thousands of dollars. Or you can opt to place a coin-flip like bet and enjoy a 50/50 chance of turning $50 into $100. I will update this list of new online sportsbooks USA in April, 2015 when new promotions, bonuses and free sports bets are available. Carbon Sports is giving new players at this new bookmaker a free $25 mobile sport bet in 2015.
